Did You Know?

It seems that someone behind the scenes couldn't make up their minds as to the main character's name. It changes from Hinkley to Hanley, as noticed for the first time here, then back to Hinkley several times during the run of the series. The first time this is actually voiced is in "Reseda Rose" when Rhonda calls him Mr. Hanley on multiple occasions. His name continues to change back and forth from season 2 onward.See more »
